The 2014 Ultimate Blog Party

 Ultimate Blog Party 2014
I'm so excited to be joining the 2014 edition of The Ultimate Blog Party! Want to join in? I'd love to meet you there. You can get all the details here.

I'm Karen, and I'm so glad you are visiting To Work With My Hands. I'm a homeschooling mom of 8 children (6 still in school), and our house is always busy. You can meet my family here. Keeping this bunch fed and organized can be quite a challenge, and at times I need to recharge. One of my favorite ways is to create with my hands. I love blogging here about those creations. I create and write about food (we consume lots and lots of food!), gardening, handcrafts, DIY projects for the home, and the body, and sometimes I'll profile what other creative people have done.

Thanks for stopping by! If you're visiting from the party, please leave a comment and share your link! I'd love to visit you too.


  1. So nice meeting you! WOW 6 kids in school AND you home school!? Sure does look like a busy house ;-)

  2. Hi Dana,
    Thanks for stopping by, and I enjoyed visiting your blog too. So, you know the boy thing too, huh? Boys are great, and I'm so thankful I have a few. :)
    Enjoy the party!

  3. Hello Karen! So happy to connect with you from the #UBP14. I'm a homeschool mom as well, but only have one student left. My oldest are graduated. :)
